Bellflower Infinity Scarf – Free Pattern!!!!

My Bellflower Infinity Scarf Pattern is probably my most popular design. It has been offered as a free pattern on Naturally Caron’s website and sadly Caron yarns has discontinued their line of Naturally Caron yarns and pulled their website and along with it, all their free patterns.  So I am posting the pattern here for free on my blog.

The Bellflower Infinity Scarf was made originally in Naturally Caron Joy! yarn, but you can make it in any worsted weight yarn.  The softer the yarn, the better– I recommend a yarn with a bamboo blend for a nice drape.  You can have fun experimenting with lighter and heavier yarns and just see what you like. Just remember that a lighter yarn is going to result in a narrower and shorter scarf and a bulkier yarn is going to result in a wider and longer scarf, so plan accordingly.

Bellflower Infinity Scarf Re-Make

I just finished up teaching a class for my Bellflower Infinity Scarf.  When I teach a project class, it gives me a chance to re-make one of my designs in my choice of yarns. The scarf was originally done in Naturally Caron Joy! yarn, which is sadly being discontinued.  For the class, I swatched the yarn in lots of different kinds of yarn. Finally I decided to go with 2 skeins of Berroco Flicker that I had in my stash. The scarf is shorter than the original since I was limited on yarn, but it’s still long enough to double.  I love this yarn. It’s soft and beautiful with a hint of sparkle.  So here’s a picture of the re-make and the original:

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I haven’t had much to say lately because I’ve just been so busy.  But meet Jasper, the newest member of our family!  We are fostering him while his mom receives some long-term medical care. Jasper makes the 6th, yes 6th, member of our feline family.  And it has been interesting. It’s only been a couple of weeks, progress has been made, but there’s more to go. Image

In crochet news, I just finished teaching a crochet class at my LYS for my Harvest Home Pillow, which you can find in the Winter 2012 Issue of Crochet! Magazine.  I hope to share some photos of my students’ finished projects soon.

In a few weeks, I’ll be teaching a class for my popular design to date – the Bellflower Infinity Scarf.

ImageI have several projects in works, including some for Love of Crochet and Willow Yarns.

Others are completed and coming out later this year and early 2014 in Love of Crochet, Herrschners, Crochet 1-2-3, and Crochet World. 

Busy, Busy, Busy!
